We believe a woman’s body has been perfectly designed for birth and in normal circumstances a baby can be born with minimal medical intervention. We believe a mother and child are fearfully and wonderfully made, and should be treated with respect at all times. We believe women can be trusted to make the best decisions for themselves and their families when given reliable, non-biased information. We believe natural childbirth is a viable option for most women, resulting in a real sense of fulfillment for the mothers and a deep bond with their babies. We believe women are strong, capable, powerful and are able to manage the discomfort of labor; they do not need to be “rescued,” rather they need to be supported.
